    The IDF has begun training Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria in advance of an expected Arab onslaught in September, ultra-leftist paper Haaretz reported Tuesday. Arabs are expected to try and march en masse on Jewish communities, hoping to overwhelm the Jews and provoke them into shooting at the Arabs. Video of Jewish settlers shooting into an Arab crowd can then be used for propaganda purposes to portray Israel in a demonic light, in the classic cat-and-mouse-and-videocam manipulative tactic used by Arabs against Israel to great effect for many years. The mass marches are to be part of a Palestinian...

    The much ballyhooed Jackson Hole Federal Reserve conclave has come to a close, and now exchange-traded fund investors face a treacherous September. This September is likely to be particularly volatile as Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke deferred any new simulative action until the now two-day Fed meeting on Sept. 20 and 21. Bernanke puts off easing talk until Sept.

Mines were laid across the perimeter fence, within the Israeli side of the border. Maj. Ariel Illouz of the engineering corps stated that the mines, combined with IDF troops, would prevent border crossing by masses of people.

    Vol. 11, No. 7 4 July 2011 What Are the Palestinians Planning after September? Pinhas Inbari * What the Palestinians really envisage after September is to exploit a UN endorsement of statehood to legitimize an escalation of the conflict. After having the 1967 lines recognized so as to negate the results of the Six-Day War, they plan to seek recognition of the 1947 partition lines. * There are signs that the long period of quiet since the Second Intifada is going to end after September or just before it, and that Abbas' Fatah organization is already preparing for the "Third...

Only a small sticker, which someone has tried to tear off, tells me that I am in the right place.

Openings decreased by 163,000 to 2.93 million, the Labor Department said today in Washington. The number of people hired rose from the prior month and separations declined. The unemployment rate was 9.6 percent for a third month in October even as payrolls increased 151,000, Labor Department figures showed last week.

    NEW YORK — Stocks jumped Wednesday after surprisingly strong growth in U.S. and Chinese manufacturing allayed some of the worries that had been building over the global economy in recent weeks. The new reports snapped a string of disappointing economic data that sent stocks slumping in August.

The Dow Jones industrial average jumped 221 points on the first day of September. Broader indexes also rose more than 2.5 percent. With investors pouring into stocks,...

    I remember getting ready for school in the living room and watched in disbelief and horror as the second plane hit. That morning as I rode the bus to school the silence in the bus was eerie. Everyone knew what had happened but no one could talk. All the way to school no a word. We were all in shock. It is still as fresh in my memory as it was that cold September morning long ago. God bless and embrace my fellow Americans, my brothers and sisters that died that horrific morning of 2001.

    The private sector cut 254,000 jobs in September, according to data in the ADP National Employment Report. The August figure was revised to 277,000 jobs lost, down from the initial estimate of 298,000. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg News had expected private employers to cut 200,000 jobs in September. ADP noted that the 254,000 private payroll cutback was the smallest since July 2008. Nevertheless, "employment, which usually trails overall economic activity, is likely to decline for at least several more months, with losses continuing to diminish," ADP said. The job loss totals in September by business size were 61,000 (large), 93,000...

How they were trained in Salman Pak, Iraq. And how Ahmed Al Haznawi was treated in Holy Cross Hospital in June 2001 for sknin infection by anthrax. The first anthrax attacks happened in September 18 2001, with a letter which stated: "Death to America, Allah is great." Experts link Iraq before both 9/11 and the anthrax attacks which remained unsolved. Watch the video. The enemy is stronger than we thought.

September will be a good time for the...

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Michael Chertoff, who arrives in Britain tomorrow for talks with John Reid, the Home Secretary, said the US was determined to build extra defences against...

    I guess my question is, how do we expect to defend ourselves against terrorism? We're fighting a war overseas and we can't even keep it together here! Sure, there have been incidences of foreign terrorists (specifically the WTC in '93 and of course on 9/11 along with the Pentagon and the downing of Flight United 93), but there is domestic terrorism! Does anyone remember Timothy McVeigh or Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris? With the latter mentioned, these were two sick individuals who were planning on a wide scale attack on their school. Fortunately, they weren't able to pull it off...

    The smoke has yet to clear from the massacres in New York, Washington, D.C. and Somerset County, PA, workers continue to drag bodies from the rubble. Six thousand more body bags have been ordered and it's still not clear now who is responsible for this mass murder....... On September 11th did we learn our lessons? Every one of us will forever remember where we were, what we were doing and whom we were with when the notion that fortress America was invulnerable collapsed in the ashes of the World Trade Center. Suddenly our collective national indifference was shattered like the...

    /15/2006 - WASHINGTON (AFPN) -- This year, the Air Force will test fly a B-52 Stratofortress that is powered, in part, by fuel derived from natural gas. The Air Force Research Laboratory's propulsion directorate, a part of Air Force Materiel Command, is providing technical assistance to the test flight scheduled for September at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif. The bomber will fly with two of its eight jet engines using a specially blended fuel made of conventional petroleum-derived JP-8 and a Fischer-Tropsch jet fuel produced from natural gas. The experiment is part of the Department of Defense's Assured Fuel Initiative,...

    PRESIDENT George Bush yesterday refused to rule out nuclear strikes against Iran if diplomacy fails to curb the Islamic republic's atomic ambitions. Iran, which says its nuclear programme is purely peaceful, told world powers it would pursue atomic technology, whatever they decided at a meeting in Moscow last night. Mr Bush said he would discuss Iran's nuclear activities with China's president, Hu Jintao, this week and avoided ruling out nuclear retaliation if diplomatic efforts fail. Asked if options included plans for a nuclear strike, Mr Bush replied: "All options are on the table. We want to solve this issue diplomatically...

    Since the New York Times and Wall Street Journal broke the news about the admission of Taliban official Sayeed Rahmatullah Hashemi to a special student program at Yale, we’ve received numerous emails from outraged Yale Alumni. One email stood out from the rest — "I won’t give Yale one red cent this year, but maybe I will give them a red fingernail instead!" She was referring to the Taliban’s policy of pulling the fingernails off of Afghani women who dared to wear fingernail polish. Some of these women even had their thumbs sliced off as punishment. To date, Mr. Rahmatullah...

    Dr. Everett Spees, a cardiothoracic surgeon at several local hospitals who helped to develop the field of organ transplants, was a bit startled to find the Army calling, asking if he'd volunteer. A retired colonel, he'd offered his services on the day after Sept. 11, 2001, but no one called back for more than two years -- after the military was thoroughly embroiled in Iraq and needing more soldiers.
